Tom is phenomenal and a great guy and his command of the dogs is outstanding. If you’ve never seen a working dog in action, this is a fantastic experience. It was very interesting to hear about the dogs tendencies and how Tom adjusts the training for each animal. Tom has insightful local knowledge too.
Fantastic experience and the highlight of our day. The farm is in such a beautiful location, and we got to watch a sheep herding demonstration, help shear a sheep, and bottle feed and hold lambs. A really unique experience, and great if you'd like to learn a bit about sheep farming and have a fun hands-on activity with sheep. Highly recommend!
